First off, congratulations on either one or more of your bartenders nominated as being the best in our region! To help you rally your own Facebook fans to your cause, we’ve created a Facebook profile picture frame that will help you to encourage your fans and anyone else who sees your page to vote for you so you can claim the #1 spot! The winner will receive a plaque! Here’s how to add the Facebook Profile Frame to your page: Go to www.facebook.com/profilepicframes Make sure you’re modifying the profile picture for your business and not a personal page by clicking the circle in the bottom left and selecting your business from among the options. If you’ve done this correctly, you’ll then see your business’s profile picture in the preview square. Search “WSLS” The frame is called “Top10” and it’s by “WSLS 10 / WSLS.com” Then click the “Top10” frame so that it appears on your profile picture in the preview window You’ll see the system defaults to having your page switch back to the previous profile picture in 1 week. Voting is underway and ends Nov. 29 at 11:59 p.m., so you may want to change it to a custom date and then click “Use as Profile Picture” Then I’d recommend, creating a post on your page that pushes people to this page https://www.wsls.com/station/2020/11/02/nominate-in-this-months-top-10-best-bartender/ where they’ll be able to find you from the list and vote for you! Individuals can vote once per hour over the voting period If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask, just email [email protected] Good luck!
Picked up my new Norco Scene VLT today. Thanks Downshift team, Madi and Josh, for all your help.
It's getting hot...!!! 🤣🤣🤣
Bike did great!!!!! Got a nice 5.6 mile ride in. Probably a little too much starting out but the bike did wonderful!!!
Giving a huge shout out to Stephen and his staff at Downshift. Man was I impressed, everyone was so courteous and professional. Everyone had smiles on their faces. What impressed me the most, Stephen looked out for me when others here in Lynchburg and Roanoke didn’t bother. He never gave up. When I messaged him looking for a bike, they didn’t have exactly what I was looking for, then he questioned if I was interested in used, I said yes. Days passed by and he kept me in mind when a Trek came in . He sent me pictures and we communicated back and forth. Today, I bought my bike from Stephen and Downshift! I couldn’t be any happier! Thank You!!!!!! Plus I love the concept of the company. Beer and bikes, can’t get no better. You’ve earned my trust and my future business.
Riding my bike is one of the ways that I relate to the world. It helps me reflect on things and helps me process things. I think that bicycles can help bring people together, so I am riding next Monday in Roanoke to show that I support the fight against racial injustice, that Black Lives Matter, and to think about how I can take action to be anti-racist. If you're in the Roanoke area, please join me. https://www.facebook.com/events/251184989540965
Hey there. New to the bike scene. 6’2 309lbs give or take a few. What brands do you carry and what do you have to fit me without breaking the bank$500-$600 range is ideal for me. Flat surfaces, neighborhood , and beginner mountain bike trails. Thanks!
